Housing experts predict Brexit would cause house prices to fall
A poll conducted by Reuters has found that housing experts predict that Britain’s property market will suffer with average prices dropping by around 3% nationally if we leave the EU without a deal. 85% of housing experts in the poll say that this drop could last for around six months. However, if Britain leaves the EU with a deal, house prices are expected to rise by around 1.5% in the following two quarters after the leave date.
“Despite the new PM and team in government there are big icebergs ahead, not least the apparent willingness to leave the EU without a deal,” said property market consultant Henry Pryor. “This is likely to spook the markets before it reassures them.”
